About Tom
Hello everyone, I'm Tom.

I have always loved teaching people things that I enjoy, sharing my experience with others, and helping people realize their own potential.

I am a musician, a martial artist, and a general IT guru.

Music and martial arts runs in my family, and I was raised around them from a very young age.

As a child, I was always fascinated with computers, and had to know everything I could about them.

My teaching style is a bit unorthodox, focusing more on philosophy and personal introspection than traditional "memorize and practice" methods, and is very mind, body, and spirit oriented.

Feel free to ask me questions for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you.

About Jean-Marc
******Update:
I am now offering group lessons for an extremely low price compared to the private lessons cost.

The price is $20 per 1 hour of group lessons
(private lessons are $60 per 1 hour).
So that's $20 vs. $60 (66% discount)

Please use the "Ask Jean-Marc a Question" button to message me and get the details or let me know that you are interested.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matt as my first chess coach and has greatly increased my understanding of chess. My games are now competitive with players 400 to 600 rating points above me and I feel I am improving every week. Funny how much I can learn quickly after playing for forty years, with just a few lessons.

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

About Rachel
I am a certified instructor yet always the student. I love to learn new skills so that I can pass them on to my students. Working 1 summer at camp defined me as a teacher. I am patient and understanding of all learning styles. No 2 students learn the same and I cater my lesson to each person individually.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was 8, but I didn't learn to knit until I was an adult. I quickly surpassed both my "teachers" to the point that I had to seek out a master instructor, and even figure things out on my own.

My beginner student project becomes your everyday go to usable project, a washcloth. Many make several before moving on to other projects such as hats, scarfs, blankets, socks and even easy, one piece sweaters!

I have researched the science behind yarn crafting and can show you how knitting and crochet can imp
rove grades in all levels of school, retrain older brains to focus, improve memory of the aged and even decrease physical therapy times post surgery; even hand and arm surgery!

I work with addiction counselors to help those afflicted recover faster, and find a healthy outlet that stays with you for the rest of your life.

My students describe me as the teacher they wished they found first. Let me teach you!

Had a wonderful experience with Rachel. She has helped me to understand and read patterns better. In addition she has helped to establish a better tension on my knitting (and crochet) so that the patterns fit the designated stitch gauge better.

Rachel is an incredibly capable knitting teacher. She has patience as well as clear guidance in a learning situation. Whatever task, stitch or just overall learning to knit is your goal, Rachel is entirely confident that she can help you achieve it.
Nothing seemed too complicated for her to teach me to do.

About Jami
Hello!
I'm Jami. I've been teaching guitar and voice lessons for over 10 years. I love teaching music lessons because I like to share my love of singing and playing the guitar. I also love seeing my students progress in their instrument! I may have a bit of a different approach than your average teacher because I am a Board Certified Music Therapist. Mostly I want my students to be successful, have fun, and feel good about themselves while learning an instrument.
I'm also experience in adapting music lessons for the student with special needs. I've taught students with cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD and more. I love music and I love sharing music with my students!

Additionally, I also teach the art of knitting and crocheting. These are two of my favorite hobbies and I love sharing them with others!

About Shannon
I am a creative soul who loves flowers. I enjoy the positive energy that flowers have. All of the different smells, textures and designs are what I have a passion for. I am a self taught floral designer and I have different modern day techniques on how to design, create and process flowers.

I have owned and worked in flowers shops in multiple states and have recently entered the floral event business and I have found it to be a whole other beast. Which, I am absolutely loving! Everything is on a much grander scale. I can do anything from 10 simple centerpieces for a small intimate event to 300 centerpieces, entry pieces, cocktail pieces and whatever else in a matter of hours.

I have worked with some amazing people and I have soaked up some tricks and I feel like sharing what I know. I can show you some basic things such as arrangin
g your everyday flowers to more detailed oriented floral designs like big and airy, low and compact, centerpieces, entry pieces, special event, sympathy, tropical and highend floral styles . There’s so much to learn!

Floral design is very fun and very rewarding. There’s something about working with flowers and creating something beautiful and custom made. Flowers are so very calming and therapeutic. I really enjoy all the positivity surrounding this profession. Flowers do have powers! I love what I do! Let’s get to designing!
